â€œHowever, in an official statement, Dell said it is already working with Novell to certify its corporate client products for Suse Linux, including OptiPlex desktops, Latitude notebooks, and Precision workstations.â€
You do realize that M$ and Novell have formed some kind of partnership, right?
It doesn't look to me like they are dumping M$...just adding Linux.
â€œCustomers interested in a MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ® solution should purchase a Dell notebook pre-loaded with Windows XP Professional.â€
It's good for Dell to add Linux. The more options the better.
